During this class, Jean will lead guests in creating the project or projects of their choice. Options include making a single project in one session or a more complex creation over multiple days in the studio. Necklaces, bracelets, cuff bracelets, earrings, and more are all possibilities! (Several possibilities are shown in the photos of Jean's workon this page.) Jean's studio full of beads, wire, metal, and other treasures will be available... and guests may select the components that they'd like to include in their finished pieces.
The base cost of each session of this class is $20, and that price includes tool usage, instruction, and solid copper wire for use in guest projects. Above this amount, the cost of classes will vary by student based on the parts and pieces that they purchase to use in their creations. Guests can expect their total cost for this class to be $24 or more based on their personal selections.
From safe tool usage and metal preparation to hand stamping and texturing... from the various methods by which jewelry components may be connected to the finishing polishing techniques... Jean will present you with easy instructions and hands-on assistance during every step of the process. She’ll also provide you with the use of all of the tools that you’ll need to complete your beautiful creations.
Whether you’re creating for yourself or a friend; the pieces that you make in this class will be treasured for a lifetime.
Due to the personalized amount of attention that each guest will receive in this class, space is limited to six students per session.
